To evaluate this work phenomenon, we created a new page entitled Work for Welfare and laid out the status and history of work as it relates to our federal welfare system. It is not a pretty picture. Far from encouraging work our current welfare system actually has a work penalty embedded in it. It is the unintended consequence of 13 uncoordinated programs.
The majority of Americans want work as the aspiration of our welfare system. Little do they know work is actually inhibited by our system. I guess the majority of Americans are too busy working themselves to focus on this atrocity.
